    The coolest dork-disc ever?!

    This has got to be the coolest looking dork-disc I have ever seen. That is of course if that is what it really is. Someone with a Sekine needs to snatch this up!

    Ok, as much as I don't like dork disks, I'll admit that one is pretty cool. If I had a Sekine.

    Yeah, that is right up there with the one that has a high and low gear switch. I can't remember who had that.

    I'd say it's a hub cap, but steppin' would just find a way to mount it on a bike, anyway.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I say yes.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Naw. It'd be cooler on a Cervelo.

    From the first picture, I would have guessed it to be only about 1/2 that diameter.

    If everyone made dork discs like that, they'd be known as cool discs.

    I think it was a bike that Doohickie bought. I think it was a dept store bike with some crazy hub / derailleur shift system. I'll see if I can find it.

    Ah ha.... found it! It is a Sears branded bike with a 5 speed lark derailleur and some sort of internal hub shifter, centrifugal force maybe? Any way, notice the L-H setting on the "dork disk":
